While I’m looking forward to fall weather, the hot summer weather tends to stick around for a while. My favorite way to cool off is with an ice cold sparkling water–plus, it helped me kick the diet soda habit a couple of years ago. Recently, I was introduced to Spindrift®, America’s first and only sparkling water made with real, squeezed fruit. It’s crisp & refreshing…perfect for cooling off in the late summer heat.
“Spindrift = sparkling water + real fruit. Yup, that’s it.” And it makes a perfect ingredient for refreshing cocktails, too. I think my personal favorite mixer is the Lemon, but with so many flavors to choose from, it’s really hard to choose just one. Here are a easy cocktails to mix up with Spindrift:
Blueberry & Lemon Sparkler
- 1.5oz Blueberry Vodka
- Lemon Spindrift Seltzer
- Lemon Slice (for garnish)
Pour Blueberry Vodka over ice and top with Lemon Spindrift seltzer. Garnish with a lemon, or drop it in the drink for a little extra “tartness.” You can also drop in a few frozen blueberries!
Sparkling Raspberry Lime Margarita
- 1 oz. Tequila
- ½ oz. Triple Sec
- 1 tsp. simple syrup
- Raspberry Lime Spindrift Seltzer
- Lime Wedges (for garnish)
Using a cocktail shaker, mix together the tequila, triple sec, simple syrup, and Raspberry Lime Spindrift seltzer. Pour over ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
Don’t those sound like perfectly refreshing cocktails on a hot summer day? Honestly, I’ll be mixing these up year ‘round since they’re so simple! They’d be perfect for mixing up at a weekend tailgate, too. If you haven’t seen Spindrift in your area, head over here to find out where you can pick up a pack.
